    It has been five years since my family was at Disney World. I loved photo pass and built an album as a keepsake. What are the differences/advantages of Memory Maker over photo pass?

    Hi Cory,

    Thanks so much for stopping by with another question!  I have to say that I'm also a big fan of Disney PhotoPass.  Even though I always take tons of pictures during my family's trips, the ones captured by the Disney PhotoPass photographers always end up being some of my favorites.  The service is super-easy to use - just find one of the hundreds of Disney PhotoPass photographers on property and say "cheese."  Then use your MagicBand, park ticket or a Disney PhotoPass card to link each photo to your account.   There's no charge for this service. Once you get home, just go online to the Disney PhotoPass site to view all your photos, customize them with borders and graphics, and order individual prints or downloads.

    What is new is Memory Maker...and it's awesome!  Memory Maker uses the Disney PhotoPass Service, but makes it even better.  When you purchase Memory Maker, you get digital copies of every single one of those photos that are on your account.  It's completely digital, so you can view, download and share your photos, and then have them printed after you're home.  There's no limit to the number of photos or the number of times you can download them.  If you're interested in Memory Maker, the most affordable option is the advance purchase, which requires a 3-day waiting period before you can start adding photos, but you can also make your purchase at the beginning of your trip once you arrive.  Either way, you'll have 45 days from when each photo was taken to download it off your account.  

    I hope that helps, Cory, but please write back if we can answer any other questions.  Wishing you a picture-perfect trip!
